Episode 20: The Power of GIS and CBPR for Public Health with Dr. Charlotte Smith

In this episode we had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Charlotte Smith, continuing lecturer at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, in the Division of Environmental Health Science.

Dr. Smith shares her career background and path into the field of public health, water quality, environmental health, and GIS. Dr. Smith also shares some of the fascinating GIS projects her students have worked on for public health.

We discuss the strengths of GIS as well as community based participatory research in this episode, and how these techologies and methods can contribute to building health equity in public health systems.
